Social media is buzzing as budding American rapper announces pregnancy in some maternity photos.

Lil Nas X hinted he was expecting; not a baby, but his debut album Montero.

The rapper who came out as gay ended his fans’ anticipation when he showed off his pregnancy in a video he posted across all his social media platforms.

In celebration of the impending delivery of his “baby” on Sept. 17, the musician, 22, did an over-the-top pregnancy shoot, complete with a bump and flower crown.

Lil Nas X (né Montero Lamar Hill) tells PEOPLE exclusively that he came up with the idea to do the shoot after listening to Megan Thee Stallion’s verse on his new song “Dolla Sign Slime” for the first time.

“I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is amazing,’ so I immediately called my stylist,” he says. “She was like, ‘Wow, this all comes together. Your album. Your baby.’ I was like, ‘Yeah, this is my baby, huh?’ As a joke, she was like, ‘Yeah, you should do a pregnancy shoot.’”

“I was like, ‘You know what? That’s actually brilliant,’” he continues. “So now we have this entire thing coming out, and it’s going to be amazing.”
